PETA aims a dig at Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce for visiting a Sydney zoo as they release statement saying A-list couple should ‘spend their time and money at a true sanctuary’

PETA has aimed a dig at Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce for visiting Sydney Zoo, as the animal rights nonprofit organization released a statement saying the couple should ‘spend their time and money at a true sanctuary,’ instead. 

The popstar and her NFL boyfriend went on a date at the 16.5-hectare site earlier this week ahead of Swift’s three concerts in Australia’s biggest city, as they were spotted even petting a little kangaroo.

But, Debbie Metzler – PETA Foundation’s Director of Captive Animal Welfare – was far from impressed with the latest sighting of the ‘You Belong with Me’ and ’22’ hitmaker.

In a shared statement, she said: ‘While we understand all too well the appeal of seeing Australia’s wildlife, PETA hopes that next time Taylor and Travis want to see wild animals, they’ll spend their time and money at a true sanctuary.’

The charitable organization adds that a sanctuary is a better choice due to visitors being at a respectful distance from animals and the fact that they can’t feed or touch them there.

But, Swift has already violated PETA’s advisory by feeding a baby kangaroo while also checking out a bunch of other animals behind cages.

Kelce jetted out to join his world famous girlfriend after she flew back to the U.S. to watch her beau and his Kansas City Chiefs teammates win their third Super Bowl in five years.

Before this year’s big game, she had been in Tokyo to perform and kickstart the international part of her Eras Tour.

After Sydney, Swift will head to Singapore for three concerts on March 2, 3 and 4.

She will then travel to Europe, where her first destination on the Old Continent is Paris.

The 34-year-old, 12-time Grammy-winning artist will be in the U.K. for most of the month of June, starting in Edinburgh (06/07, 06/08).


She will be in London for two concerts on June 21 and 22.
